This sand is clean and free from nasty little bits of grit. It is designed for use by children and so complies to all the relevant standards. We use it in our parrots' cages (together with a little added grit!). We have owned gerbils in the past and, if added to peat, this sand will make an excellent burrowing medium. Hope this helps.

The sand is damp and rather heavy to carry so be prepared.

i used this for my tropical fish tank after reading all the reviews...i WOULD NOT recommend using this in your fish tank unless you want constanly dirty looking water...we cleaned it and also boiled it on the stove which did removed alot of the dirt i put it into the tank and filled it..and within 3 days the tank was a horrible yellow greeny grey gruby colour again i would pay the extra money and pay out for proper aquarium sand as we must of been stood taking turns washing it for at least 5 hours...and this was after it had been boiled!! i would upload a picture of my tank with it in but it wont allow me!!

Answer(s)
It didnt say but considering it looks and feels like the sort of sand you get on the beach (it is soft and heavy) which is of course silicon dioxide I'd assume it was 100%.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into your query and I am unable to advise how many bags of sand are required for the Chad Valley Pink Sand and Water Pit, as the capacity given for this is in Litres. I am unable to convert Litres to Kg as Litre is a unit of volume and Kg is a unit of weight.

Question
What volume of sand (in litres, cm3, etc) is provided by the product?
Since I'm looking at filling a sand pit of a particular volume, I could care less about the weight! I need to know how many bags to buy. Surely most customers would be interested.

Thank you for your question.

After contacting the manufacturer, I can confirm that the Children's Play Sand - 15kg Bag is approximately 1 kilo per litre so an average 15kg bag will contain 15 litres of sand.
